Located in close proximity to the river Seine, Le Havre is a is situated in north-west France and is also the second busiest port in the country, after Marseille. Citizens of Le Havre have helped dampen the notion that the city is synonymous with urban gloom, and, following extensive improvements, the city is now referred to as the 'Brasilia of France'. Le Havre has faced adversity but is now a city of discovery.
During the WWII and through the Battle of Normandy the port city was heavily bombed. As a result, Le Havre has undergone massive reconstruction. With 90% of the city left in tatters, the country’s second biggest port experienced a degree of damage unlike any other French city. Within the infancy period of 1945, architect Auguste Perret was granted control to rebuild the city to what we see today.
